president obama on the wrist the way you might casually do with a friend. so i don't think that they're frenemies. it seems they had genuine affection for each other as they talked about politics, as they talked about their rivalry, yes, and also 2016. >> i consider hillary a strong friend. >> i mean, very warm, close. i think there's a sense of understanding that sometimes doesn't even take words because we have similar views. >> reporter: rewind five years to their bruising primary battle. >> you're likable enough, hillary. >> thank you so much. i'm here. he's not. >> i can't tell who i'm against sometimes. >> how long did it take to get over that? >> it didn't take long as people perceive it. >> it took longer for their staffs. not to mention -- >> i think spouses take it much harder. in a way -- >> reporter: 2016 came up. the president laughed off a question about endorsing clinton. >> and i was literally inaugurated four days ago. and you're talking about elections four years from now. >> reporter: and the secretary side-stepped. >> and i don't think either he or i can make predict

senator from massachusetts, elizabeth warren and republican senator john mccain. >>> president obama's second term barely underway. a lot of political buzz about 2016 and the next presidential election and some of the things happening fuelling that buzz. you have hillary clinton's testimony about the terrorist attack in benghazi, libya adding to the speculation about whether or not she is going to run. some consider clint's five hour confrontation as a sign of things to come. and then you have vice president joe biden shaking hands, jogging along the parade route after the inauguration, was he trying to show he is pretty fit enough to be president in four years? joining us to talk about all of this anna navarra and larry, the director for the center for paul acs at the university of virginia. larry, i want to start off with you. a lot of people say we might be seeing a preview of 2016. folks i have talked to say bill clinton making sure there are no barack obamas around the corner, clearing the way for his wife. can you see any signs? can you read the tea leaves? >> i think people aren

and not top down politically and t artificially from washington. if what obama was proposing was a great idea, this should be the most prosperous economy in the world. republicans heard jindal say we're going to do something new and turn that model on its head and grow the economy bottom up. that's how republicans get young people, women, immigrants, everybody. >> one of the things that mitt romney got into trouble with is that it really did sound like he was being degrading to african-americans, latinos and people who supported the president by saying the kinds of things that you just said in terms of being a victim and being taken care of. how does the republican party -- what is the message here in terms of we are inclusive and we will provide for your life so that it is a better life without sounding so condescending? >> i'll disagree. i don't think that's what i just said. i think that is in fact the president's approach to government that in a complex world, you know, he targets these folks. this is the story of julia cradle to crave, government is here to give you stuff and

the federal government. sometimes in politics, the best way to do that is to run against the federal government. that's the honest truth. >> john avlon, margaret hoover, thank you very much. >> thanks, victor. >>> president obama may be facing a high stakes supreme court battle because a federal appeals court unanimously ruled today that president obama's recess appointments to a federal agency are unconstitutional. the president named three people to the national labor relations board during congress' winter holiday break a year ago. they were former deputy labor secretary sharon block, attorney richard griffin, and attorney terrence flynn. now, today, a three-judge federal panel said those appointments are invalid because the senate was only in recess and technically still in session. let's bring in legal analyst jeffrey toobin. jeffrey, there are so many questions here. first, let's start with what is the next move? >> well, he will either ask the full appeals court to hear it, or go directly to the supreme court. you know, this is a very technical legal issue. but when you cut th

nowhere. >> that said, john king, this could be a true political breakthrough. live pictures, we're awaiting this news conference any minute now. keep in mind the timing here. this comes one day before president obama will be revealing his plans in las vegas. so what you're about to see and hear is really both sides of this whole debate. but, first, we have a symbol along with you, john king, our political experts to guide us through all of this. we have chief congressional correspondent dana bash for us on the hill. chief political analyst gloria borger there for me in our washington bureau. and several others who we'll talk to in a minute. dana bash, i want to begin with this. the optimism, it seems, pervasive, right, on the hill, and we have heard that the time is right for immigration deals before. you were in the room in 2007 when senator ted kennedy was talking. let's watch this. >> now it is time for action. 2007 is the year we must fix our broken system. we must strike while the iron is hot. i've been around here long enough to know that opportunities like this don't come ve

great job. maybe that's why the justice department's taken me to court and obama's going after me. that's sad. here we have a recent election year, now all at once everybody's talking about enforcing these laws. they should have been doing it years ago. so it is a political situation. let's see what happens. i'm very amused at we must secure the border first before really we do anything. i was the director, regional director in mexico city, south america, texas, arizona, with the u.s. drug enforcement. we still haven't secured a border. throughout the years you will never secure the border 100%. so why do we keep saying secure the border first and then we'll do something about it? we should be enforcing the laws in the united states of america when they cross the border. it's very simple. >> you've lost some allies here. senator john mccain, he weighed in on this. obviously there's political realities to pushing for an immigration reform. here what happens he said about what's being put on the table. >> elections, elections. the republican party is losing the support of our hispan

emphasis on the enforcement side, but i think that obama will spend some political capital on the issue of how these 11 million undocumented aliens can become on the path to citizenship. >> and as someone who knows that process, who knows the complicated paperwork, who knows the frustration of waiting for the bureaucracy, do you think it can be done, you can have a path to earned citizenship, which somebody comes forward, gets first a green card, legal status and then in line for citizenship. can that be done in a way that is fair or as fair as possible in the sense that if there is someone who has been waiting legally, will the people already in this country actually go to the back of the line? that's what a lot of people suspect won't happen. >> well, the senate proposal and president obama have both said they will go to the back of the line. that line in some instances is years long for family reunification. it is one of the reasons that employers have said over and over that we need a simplified streamlined immigration system so that persons can be hired legally. and have a legal pa

politics. i will take president obama at face value. he is thanking hillary clinton. she's not just any secretary of state. she's high profile. but, yeah, there's probably some four-letter words being uttered from joe biden's residence last night. >> maybe so. let's talk about hillary clinton's tenure as secretary of state. steve craw from "60 minutes" pressed hillary clinton about her tenure, and she wasn't able to point out any huge, giant policy changes, l.z. >> no. but you know what, to be quite honest, i really can't think of any policy change that's come from a secretary of state in the last few. i don't think it's as high profile of a position to the american people as it is to those within this junket of politics and those who cover it. so it is difficult to really pinpoint one significant thing she has done or her predecessors. with that being said, though, i will give her credit for an amazing speech that she delivered equating the rights of lesbian, gay, transgender people with human rights. when she delivered that speech, it went viral, and she was given heaps and heaps of p

mcconnell. >> some have said it was it was indelicate of me to suggest that our top political priority over the next two years should be to deny president obama a second term. but the fact is, if our primary legislative goals are to repeal and replace the health spending bill, to end the bailouts, cut spending and shrink the size and scope of government, the only way to do all of those things is to put someone in the white house who won't veto any of these things. >> after that, democrats worried republicans were trying to annihilate the democratic party, in part by trying to destroy unions, the most vivid example of that, wisconsin. the republican governor successfully pushed a bill that stripped collective bargaining rights for most public unions. ohio and michigan followed scott walker's lead with mixed success. and now it seems the tables have turned. now if you believe boehner, the democrats want to annihilate the gop. so the talkback question for you, do you agree with boehner? will obama try to annihilate the republican party? facebook.com/carolcnn, or tweet me @carolcn

down with eric kantor to discuss washington's next big political battle budget. >> when you look at the options out there, president obama's budget proposal and paul ryan's offer, they both don't do what guys say need to be done. now you have a proposal that said you will balance the budget in years. i asked paul ryan this and i can't get an answer. how? it's going to hurt. >> there new base lines in the budget. as we know, some of the difficulty and the differences in washington were centered around the method of accounting whether it's static or dynamic. when you raise taxes, that $650 billion of additional tacks that went in because of the cliff deal, that adjusts the base line. that is going to make the numbers look differently. right? we will have to make choices. no question about it. we have committed to putting a budget out there that will bring it to balance within years. >> the fact is nobody seems to want to own up to a budget that will hurt. >> the ryan budget, the last didn't balance in almost 30 years. the way we were trying to move said look. like in most in the priva

is, yes, it does matter. we'll have to see how and if she re-engages in politics and whether she's better at it the next time around than she was when she lost to barack obama. >> that's why it is such hard and personal question. the vice president of the united states, joe biden, would be a formidable contender. he would be the oldest man. hillary clinton is just behind him. there is an age question, a health question. if you look at rest of the field, no offense to governor cuomo or o'malley or hickenlooper or anybody else out there, they're not in hillary clinton's league. when they come to her in six months or 18 months and say here is the data, we can raise the money, she has to make such an intensely personal decision, do i want to get back to being so popular on a bipartisan basis around the world, not just the country, to being that polarizing figure again. think how important she's been in the last two democratic administrations. one was her husband's. he would not have been president. the gennifer flowers scandal might have brought him down if she wouldn't have stood by h

spent on the 2012 political campaigns and that's enough to by 20 boeing 757s, or 50 private islands. that includes president obama and mitt romney as well as congressional candidates around the country. committees like the rnc and dnc spent $22 billion, and super packs spent another $22 billion, and election officials are still adding that number up, and this could be the first time outside groups spent more than political parties. >>> huh recall doua huh raueral. he could be a candidate. he supports gay rights and gay marriage. he already scoped out his potential opponents. check it out. >> i am and i have been in touch with some people in the republican party in new jersey, and i am truly contemplating running for senate against frank lattenburg or cory booker. >> that should be an interesting race. >>> secretary hillary clinton is hours away from leaving office. she says she is ready for rest after logging almost a million miles in the air as the nation's top diplomat. she is set to deliver her farewell speech in the next hour to the folks that she said in the department over the
